Originally built in 1913, the eclectic architecture-style property in Tel Aviv’s Neve Tzedek neighbourhood has been meticulously restored, and reimagined as a charming 44-room boutique hotel.
Franco-Israeli owner Domonic Romano acquired the defunct building in 2004 with the intention to give Elkonin a second life, and re-introduce the art of hospitality to the institution. Local architecture firm, Bar Orian, was hired to restore the 20th-century listed property protecting its original architectural motif, including stone pillars, railings and magnificent extended window sills, and extend the property to add a site-specific glass-ensnared eight-story modern structure that provides access to the rooftop on the seventh floor. This seamless fusion of the old and new represents a beautiful reflection of Tel Aviv’s history and contemporary spirit.
